How did a tiny restaurant serving a basic assortment of cheap Indian classics get to be one of the more popular birthday party destinations in the city? Ask one of the guys standing on the stairs, yelling at people to come up to the second floor. Inside, every inch of the ceiling is taken up by bright red chili pepper lights and golden tinsel. Squeeze through the two rows of tables to find your seat along one of the wildly colorful walls. One of the biggest draws is the BYOB policy; head down to the Punjab Deli downstairs, which has a huge selection of bottled beers to pair with your meal. Needless to say, the atmosphere can get loud and rowdy. The menu isn't particularly adventurous with dishes like tikka masala, chicken tandoori, curries, paratha (Indian flat bread) and a large selection of vegetarian dishes.—Keith Wagstaff
